In this article, we’ve listed out the official screen replacement cost of different midrange phones in Nepal. And this smartphone segment is getting more and more competitive every year in terms of design, performance, durability, etc. But guess what? No matter how sturdy a phone is, it is not immune to breakage and damage. And the most common of them is a screen replacement.

It is quite scary, mostly in the premium section of smartphones. Replacing a damaged or broken screen for a $1,000 phone can go as high as $400—or maybe even more. You could make a religion out of this. However, today I’ll be discussing screen replacement costs for some of the popular midrange smartphones you can buy right now in Nepal.

The whole point behind purchasing an economical phone is cost minimization.

So it’s pretty ironic if their repair ends up being rather costly, right? Hopefully, this article will be helpful to our readers to make an informed purchase decision when buying a phone, or when you have to get the screen replaced.

The following list of smartphones is arranged in ascending order of their respective official screen replacement costs. And as for the screen-to-phone cost percentage, lower is better, which means the cost to replace the screen is relatively cheaper than the actual phone’s cost.

Screen replacement cost of popular midrange phones in Nepal:

1. Samsung Galaxy A33

At this point, Samsung Galaxy A33 (review) is over a year old now. Its 6.4-inch FHD+ AMOLED display has a U-shaped notch and a pretty thick bottom bezel. As expected from a Samsung-made panel, Galaxy A33 has a great screen.

At launch, this phone was quite overpriced at Rs. 46,999 for the sole 8/128GB variant. But it’s available for Rs. 42,999 right now. Now, the moment of truth. The official screen replacement cost for the Galaxy A33 is Rs. 8,700, which is roughly 20.24% of the phone’s MRP.

2. Vivo V27e

Next on our list is the new Vivo V27e. It’s essentially a toned-down version of the Vivo V27 (review), but you get a smaller 6.62-inch FHD+ AMOLED panel here. And unlike Vivo V27, it doesn’t have a curved display either.

Here in Nepal, Vivo V27e retails at Rs. 41,999 for the 8/256GB variant. Its screen replacement, on the other hand, costs Rs. 9,000. Or about 21.43% of the phone’s retail price.

3. Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G

This last year’s midranger from Xiaomi, the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G (review), features a 6.67-inch FHD+ AMOLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate and Gorilla Glass 5 protection.

And if you were unfortunate enough to break or in any other way damage its screen, it will set you back Rs. 10,800. With a starting price of Rs. 38,499, the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G’s screen-to-phone cost percentage of 28.06%.

4. OnePlus Nord CE 2

Here, the OnePlus Nord CE 2 (review) is a 2022 midrange phone from the Chinese company. It’s essentially a rebranded OPPO Reno 7 5G though, and sports a 6.43-inch OLED panel with a 90Hz refresh rate and FHD+ resolution.

On to its price, the phone costs about Rs. 48,999 for the 8/128GB configuration here in Nepal, while replacing its screen will put you short of a jaw-dropping Rs. 16,500. As a result, its screen replacement alone covers 33.68% of the phone’s price.

5. Realme 10 Pro+

The final entry on our list is the Realme 10 Pro+, which features a gorgeous curved display. You’re looking at a 6.7-inch FHD+ OLED panel with a hole-punch cutout, a 120Hz refresh rate, and 2160Hz high-frequency dimming technology.

Realme 10 Pro Plus design and Display

Realme 10 Pro+ goes for Rs. 45,999 (8/128GB), and its official screen replacement cost is a whopping Rs. 16,000! That makes up around 34.79% of the phone’s price. So while its curved display sure is nice to look at and interact with, getting it replaced is going to be an expensive ordeal.

Final words

In my books, a good phone isn’t just one that performs well; it should simultaneously be durable enough so that a yearly upgrade isn’t required. So when buying a new phone, I believe it’s important to consider its repairability as well, besides its price, specs, and everything else.

I know, I’m asking a lot of our Nepalese audience when I say they consider such factors. But the fact of the day is that the growing volume of smartphone production takes a toll on the environment as well due to carbon emissions. And costs incurred on smartphone repairs like screen replacement don’t come cheap either. So, if possible, consider the repairability score of a phone from sites like iFixit before buying one.
